Abstract

The Dutch Reformed Church (DRC) and the Second World War – preliminary notes on the influence of ideology on the relationship between Church and StateVery little has been written on this specific topic. The period and topic under discussion represents a highly emotional one and many of those who experienced it are still alive. We are therefore aware of our responsibility regarding objectivity since this field of study is still young in historiographical sense. This article can only be regarded as an exploration in this field with the purpose to focus on the effect of ideology on the role the church or at least church leaders played in relationship to the state. This article will also proof evident that Church Historiography cannot be practised in isolation. In this regard the interaction between sosio-political and ecclesiological matters are at stake.
